Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy has cleared the air after getting caught rubbing elbows with former "Golden Girls" actress Betty White, at a taping for late night talk show "Conan" last month.
Describing White's swag, Jeezy expressed how much the 90 year-old actress has grinded throughout the years.
" [Laughs] Oh man, Betty cool, man. We were just chopping it up and she was saying she's a fan of me. Then, we were talking about the Golden Girls and how much of a fan I was of the show when I was growing up. It was her birthday at the time, and she just turned 90. You know, she just cool and she been through a lot, and she still here. A lot of her co-stars are gone but she still going strong. I was trying to see if she is taking anything some kind of herb diet I mean I need to know I want to be around when I am 90, too." (VIBE)
The self-proclaimed T.R.A.P star also claimed that Betty co-signed his musical talents.
"Yeah man, you know I use to live with my aunt and that's all she would watch Golden Girls and the judge show. She used to watch Golden Girls and People's Court, so I did, too," he added. "She just said 'I love your music and I'm a big fan.' I was just like, 'What?! That's what's up!' Then we spoke about the Golden Girls and how much of a big fan I was." (VIBE)
A photo of Jeezy and White chopping it up landed online a couple weeks ago.
Now here's something you don't see every day. "Golden Girl" Betty White got some thug motivation from Young Jeezy backstage at "Conan" today. "With the OG Betty White," tweeted the Snowman, who will perform his new single "Leave You Alone" with Ne-Yo on tonight's show. (Rap-Up)
No stranger to hip-hop, White previously shared the television spotlight alongside rap mogul Jay-Z for "Saturday Night Light" a couple of years ago.
"The nerves are running rampant tonight because I'm scared to death, if you really want to know the truth," White said about the big show this weekend. "Well, there are a lot of sketches coming up. I know it seems like about 350, and I will be doing a couple of sketches with Jay-Z, so that should be fun. "The "Golden Girls" star said she thinks performing alongside Jay will finally prove to all her pals that she's still hip. "I'm very excited about meeting him, and I bragged to all my friends who think I'm over the hill," she joked. "Well, I did a sketch with Jay-Z." (MTV)
